AtomicXRer even with my GPS track I doubt I could do that again--it would be fun to watch Retoon out there in those stumps!

May be up around Flagstaff? They've been buring a lot lately up there.

That Pipeline rd. route went away years ago when infrastructure for Quemazon subdivision went in back in mid-90s...county and people got pissed when people were still riding the trail.

The Guaje pines trail (behind the cemetery) is still rideable....all the way up the ridge and around to Rendija.

The Baca Land and Cattle guys only caught us once, and they were pissed, because they needed to use the helicopter to find us. After a stern lecture, they let us go. I think they enjoyed the excitement

I tried retracing the route in a 4x4 a few years ago, and had to start at Camp May since Pipeline was so screwed up. The Valle Grande National Preserve people don't take kindly to vehicles.

Can you still get from Camp May back over the ridge north of Pipeline and go by the old reservoir to Guaje Pines? It would make for a longer ride, but then again, Pipeline Road was always a bit over-rated anyway. LOL (says the kid who wrecked his dad's 1969 Jeep "Jeepster" Commando back in 1982)

My favorite area

The great riding is but one facet of this fantastic area. I've been up there every year since '84 and still haven't seen it all.

BTW - a member of my crew actually worked that fire. I was calling him all summer long trying to keep up with the fire's progress - we always go Labor Day weekend. Glad to find it wasn't as bad as reported.

Good RR - KilLeR day ride.

Wasn't as bad as reported?

Evacuated Los Alamos (a town of 18,000 people) for 5 days, 235 homes destroyed, facilities at Los Alamos National Laboratory were destroyed (in the tech area where special nuclear materials are stored), shut down one of the largest employers in the state for nearly a week, the largest fire in New Mexico history, at a cost of almost a billion dollars isn't as bad as reported?

Sounds like an adventure. Not sure I would have made it through that invisible singletrack. Looks like you're enjoying your new bike.

Out of Camp May w/ a motorized bike is no longer permitted...but in theory still possible...the mtn bikers have maintained it.

Cool!

In that last photo, I can literally see my house.

I've never been off road in that area. I'm usually flying by on NM4. Tons and tons of great scenery up there, even after the fire. Went up there a few weeks ago and saw some really nice new growth of what I thought were aspens.

Only way to develop interest in a ride is to stretch the truth a little bit.
